HEADPHONE and SPEAKER BURN-IN
I have a pair of ATH-M20X headphones that sounded like dog doodoo out of the box. I was thinking of sending them back, but decided to try burning them in with white noise. So I downloaded a white noise generator for my music player, and burned them in for 10 hours. The sound difference from new to now is phenomenal. I love those headphones, and they are my primary traveling pair now.
You just need a few minutes to break them in at most. After that you need to break in your ears to adapt to your new cans. Put them on and dive into your precious music library, voila!
